Technical Specification

The Technical Specification is the “master document” for ISBT 128. The document provides the specifications for coding information using ISBT 128. It outlines how data structures should be encoded and interpreted. Also, it provides the general requirements for labeling products pertaining to blood, tissue, cellular therapy, ocular products, and milk products.

Standard Terminology

To achieve standardization, ISBT 128 uses internationally agreed upon product definitions. All product description definitions are maintained in this document. This document is updated and given a new version number each time there is a change to the Class or Attribute tables of the ISBT 128 Product Description Codes Database. It contains the formal definitions of all Classes, Modifiers, and Attributes used in the database. The default value for each Attribute group is also specified in the document.
